A staff member at the school became aware of the incident and took the children to the nurse’s office, where the emergency services were called.

All four students were said to be alert, stable and talking to emergency responders, officials said.

The children were not taken away in an ambulance, because when their parents arrived at the school they signed refusals and expressed a desire to escort the children to hospital themselves.

Phoenix police are investigating the incident but say, at this time, no criminal intent has been identified.

Calls to the Moon Mountain Elementary School were forwarded to the Washington School District, which went unanswered when contacted by DailyMail.com.

In an emailed statement, a Washington Elementary School District spokesperson said: ‘On October 17, 2019, at approximately 7:30am, it was reported to staff that a student distributed heart medicine to four students before school.

‘As a precautionary measure, staff notified the Phoenix Fire Department and brought the children to the health office.

‘After being evaluated by paramedics, students who were involved in the situation were released with their parents/guardians’.
